Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

McDonnell Douglas F-15C Eagle – 493th FS, USAF, RAF Lakenheath, 2014

1:72 Scale.  Length: 10.75".  Wingspan: 7.25"

Limited production of approximately 650 models worldwide

The 493rd Fighter Squadron “Grim Reapers”, 48th FW, relocated to RAF Lakenheath, England in January 1960 equipped with the F-100 Super Sabre. Their mission was to provide support for USAF and NATO operations. In 1972 the 493rd re-equipped with the F-4 Phantom II until 1977 when they traded the Phantoms for the F-111 Aardvark. In 1994 the squadron re-equipped with the F-15C Eagle. F-15C #84-0027 wears two stars denoting the IrAF Mirage and MiG-23 it shot down in 1991 during Operation Desert Storm.

In 1967 the United States became aware of the Soviet MiG-25 Foxbat. This made it necessary to develop a new aircraft to counter the MiG-25. The USAF rejected the USN F-14 Tomcat and issued its own requirements. The solution came in the form of the McDonnell-Douglas (now Boeing) F-15 Eagle. The F-15A made its inaugural flight in July 1972 and in January 1976 the first Eagle entered service. The "E" entered service in 1989. The F-15 was the first dedicated USAF air superiority fighter since the F-86 Sabre.

Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
